Coordination, Cooperation, Collaboration: Three Studies on Human Capacities for Coaction

Research output: ThesisDoctoral ThesisExternal


The three studies of this dissertation are concerned with human cooperative behavior. In particular, it is investigated in two game theoretical studies and one laboratory experiment if the cognitive foundations of cooperative decision making could have originally evolved in the context of problems of social interaction that are characterized by less severe conflicts of interests. The three original papers are flanked by a joint introductory literature overview and a critical discussion.
